Which wheel design do you prefer? SL63

Picking up a 2009 SL63 next week and am looking to get a nice set of wheels on the car asap. I finally found one in my favorite color combo, Diamond White with Berry Red interior. I had a set of the GT5's on a red SL55 a few years ago and still like this style "pictured below". Which one of following wheel styles do you prefer?



1. Niche GT5 - M133






2. Niche Grand Prix - M324






3. Niche Le Mans - M321







4. Niche Verona M151

Yep, coffee in hand. No comments on the wheels, however.

Gt5, but would be cool in gunmetal finish.

Sorry bit I don't dig any of those wheels. I think you need a staggered lip set up! Check out HRE. Prices are not for everyone but there is a big range of prices and wheels.

The Niche grand prix with black spokes polish lip will look killer and complement any color SL.

I put niche essen on my black sl63. They look great. I just happen to like the original set more. So, I have a brand new set of wheels with michelin pilot sports tires for sale. Brand new 20 miles ago. I drove home, and right back to the store.

My choice would have been the Grand Prix wheel too but I just found out that they don't come in the correct fitment.

I love HRE, DPE, Adv1, etc but definitely don't want to drop $5k-$7k into wheels and tires for a daily driver.

I've narrowed it down to the Le Mans, and the GT5 again. The Le Mans comes in two colors "full matte black or gloss black lip and tinted face." If I went with the GT5, I would probably have it powdercoated in a black chrome color.

I just picked up a diamond white sl63 as well, I wasnt lucky enough to get that badass red interior though. Buts it does have the carbon fiber package.

Have you looked at the Rohana rc10 19s in the Black with machined face finish? I think thats what Im going to get.

I vote for these Rohanas, what's the price?

Here in PA., if you drive around the Block, you will need to buy four new wheels - due to a major Pot Hole every 50 feet!

Sorry, but I prefer the stock rims over any of those. Ask 100 people and you'll get 100 different opinions. Bottom line is it does not matter what we think. Get what you like and tell all of us to f*&K off.
